Real Madrid suffered their biggest ever home defeat in Europe as they were thrashed by CSKA Moscow in the Champions League. The European champions, who had already won Group G, named a weakened team. Fedor Chalov curled home CSKA's opener against the run of play and Georgy Schennikov volleyed in a second after Mario Fernandes' shot was saved. Arnor Sigurdsson completed the convincing win with a strike from the edge of the box.

 

Real Madrid brought on Gareth Bale at half-time and the Welshman suffered an ankle injury, although he was able to play the rest of the game after receiving treatment. The holders were booed off at full-time by their fans as they suffered a first home Champions League defeat in nine years.

 

CSKA Moscow, whose only two group wins came against Real Madrid, are out of Europe after Viktoria Plzen beat Roma 2-1 to finish third and clinch a Europa League place.
